"Oragami Boxes"

Hello Blog friends, followers and all my loyal callers by.  I have quite a few callers who do not have Blogs, I really appreciate that you keep popping in.  Thank you everyone for all the encouraging comments, they make this Blogging Lark all worth while.
All rather boring at "The Ranch" these days, however we will soon have lambs running about in the field I am looking forward to that.
You are all probably "sick to the back teeth" of all my recent makes.   I promise (well I think I do) today`s will be the last.  I have a few other things but I will pass on them for the time being.
Susan:- the flowers on my Bags were Velum coloured using my SN Pens
Here are a few Origami Boxes I made.  I love making them, once you "get it" they are very easy.  Christina over at:-  has a wonderful Tutorial for making them. On the left hand side bar Christina has a selection including "Video Tutorials" click on that, it takes you to a menu of all her wonderful easy to follow tutorials.  Scroll down and you will find the one for "Origami Boxes"
Here is a selection of mine:-

All made using First Addition Papers I have had for ages
SB Dies for the Roses, foliage and the Butterflies. SW Dies for some of the leaves. SB Dies for the Scalloped Edged pieces
Organza Ribbon and pearls from my stash

Another Box using a sheet of Tilda Paper for the Box.   Odds and ends from my Bit Box for all the decoration.

I also make up Packs of 3 of little cards, no greeting and blank inside for general use.  These always sell well.  These are 4x6 made using my all time favourite set of stamps from StaminUp

I these are in packs of 3 as well, they are 4x4

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

  11. Hi Patrica. These boxes are gorgeous. I am sure they are very popular at your friend's tea rooms. Miserable day here today when I would normally be crafting but just storing all these ideas up for when I can start again. Hasn't stopped me getting some new dies so will be ready to start as soon as I can.

  12. These are all gorgeous Patricia. Love the stamps on the notelets. Christina does marvellous tutorials both on her blog and on Youtube the only problem I have with them is the music. The same few bars playing over and over and over - it puts me off watching.

  13. Oh Patricia I know I say it a lot but I do love how you create your flowers. Great origami boxes, love your colour combo and fab cards too. You have been busy.
    Enjoy your evening, hugs Erika. x

  14. Hi Patricia, These are all stunning !! loving everything about these projects, the origami boxes are definitely addictive, and the embellies are stunning, as are your sets of cards and notelets.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  15. Hi Patricia,
    These boxes and cards are just beautiful. I am going now to have a look at the origami boxes. I have so much 12 x 12 patterned paper that it would be good to find something to do with it!!!
    But first I'm going on to Sandra's blog to get my coffee that you've paid for, thank you!! xxx

  16. Your boxes should be sold in a wedding store Patricia! They are totally delightful and sheer eye candy! Also love your elegant cards, very delicately made! Hugs, Ira xox

  24. Hi Patricia. Ive been so busy trying to get sorted for market this Sunday. I was going great guns, so much more relaxed and plenty of time to get a good amount of MD cards ready to take, then wallop, you know the rest, so Im manic now trying to catch up with everything I had to drop. Thanks for the sizing info. I checked the Range website and they had them online but not in the shop, my wonderful husby checked HC too and they didnt have it either, but I will get one eventually. I just want to say what a riot of colour you must bring into the coffee shop. Your bags, beautiful box selection, and of course your gorgeous cards must fly out of the door. They are all.pretty stunning.
    Will try to get back for your 'oldie' later but if I cant.I apologise.
